Dog Detective Part 2 - Flashcards (eBook)


This ebook by award winning authors Teresa Lewin and Joan Orr shows photos of dogs that illustrate various emotional states. A list of clues are given at the beginning so that children know what to look for in the photos that follow. There are contrasting photos of 12 different dogs showing both "safe" and "dangerous" emotional states. Each photo is repeated with the clues marked by arrows in a "flashcard" type format so that readers can guess whether the dog is safe or dangerous and then turn the page for the answer. The information is suitable for children and their parents, but would serve as a good primer for anyone who wants to know the basics of dog body language.

The photos in this kit are the same as those in the Flashcards kit shown above, but are presented in eBook format suitable for electronic viewing or printing in a small size.

  1. dog detective part 2

    why does this book tell kids to look down as if a tree looking at their roots, thats a good way to get a kid muzzle punched in the face by a dog!

  2. We recommend that children look at their feet so as to avoid making eye contact with the dog. If a dog is aggressive, then eye contact could make the situation worse. Dogs rarely jump at children who are standing still. We have never heard of the "muzzle punch" scenario happening. Please visit the Be a Tree reference page for a detailed explanation of the reasons behind the "tree" pose. http://www.doggonesafe.com/Be%20a%20Tree%20Reference%20page.htm
